Talk about insane trains! Stars didn’t hold back when it came to rocking long, luxurious backsides to their gowns. Rihanna and Kim Kardashian are just a few of the stars who flaunted the sort of lengths usually reserved for royalty and brides on their wedding day — and we loved it!
Rihanna, 27, is one of the best-dressed pop divas around, so it’s not a shock that her bright yellow robe stole the carpet at the Met Ball in NYC on May 4. Many other celebs followed in her fashionable footsteps and also went for long, dramatic trains. Read on to get the details, and leave us a comment on which celeb had the best train game!
Met Gala Dresses 2015 Trends — Trains Ruled The Red Carpet:
There’s no way around it: Rihanna’s yellow, fur-trimmed Guo Pei creation was NUTS. As RiRi told Vanity Fair: “I’m so in love with this dress, but the train is insane! I can’t really walk in it without any help—but it’s so worth it. I love this dress so much!”
Anyway, between the notice-me hue, scrolling embroidery and thick fur trim, it’s hard to pick the most impressive detail about Rihanna’s robe. We think it’s safe to say, though, that the train’s length is it. Rihanna could make 20 regular-sized robes out of that train, should she ever feel the need to start a spa or something. It took Pei two years to complete — totally worth it, because this dramatic look will be talked about for years to come!
Kim Kardashian & More Choose Trailing Trains for 2015 Met Gala
Kim Kardashian swanned around the red carpet — she literally evoked a swan — in a custom Roberto Cavalli gown. Kim rocked the long feathered train on her design, and artfully placed embellishments covered everything that needed to be covered. It was sexy, but still appropriate for such a sophisticated event.
Kerry Washington looked gorgeous and grand in a satin pink Prada high-low gown. The vast train carved an attractive silhouette, and the luminous pink fabric had her glowing. Kerry was pretty as a princess!
Uma Thurman stunned in a white, body-hugging Atelier Versace dress. The wrapped tie waist and single robe sleeve echoed a classic Chinese Hanfu design, and the train added formal elegance. Most importantly, Uma wore her dress with grace and ease!
